Mens Boardshorts | Aqua Design

  • Dry off quickly with fast drying, moisture wicking AquaPoly fabric.
  • Keep your shorts on with an inner waist cinch adjustment.
  • Extra comfort thanks to a side stretch waistband.
  • Sun protection thanks to UPF 50+ rated fabric.

When the sun is shining and the waves are pounding, you better be out there. But before you go out, be sure to suit up with the Big Wave Rash Guard. We’ve added an extra dose of comfort and functionality to the classic board short with a touch of water inspired style.

Care Instructions:

Machine wash cold, tumble dry low or hang dry (fast-drying fabric), no fabric softener, no bleach. Follow care instructions and fabric will not shrink.

Aqua Design Fabric Features

Comfort and Functionality Made For the Water

Don’t be surprised if the Big Wave Board Shorts are the most comfortable swim trunks you’ve ever worn. They’re made of breathable, quick drying AquaPoly knit material for that also provides excellent UPF 50+ sun protection. We’ve replaced the typical zipper or snap you find on board shorts with a convenient hook-pile attachment on the waist and fly, so there’s nothing that can corrode or rust. We also added two side pockets to hold your keys or other small items. The side panels feature Aqua Designs signature Black Water 3-D water print for a unique style you won’t find anywhere else.
